I signed the following petition…
“The nomination of Samuel Alito poses a grave threat to the protections Americans count on, including basic workers’ rights, women’s rights, and civil rights. We call on the Senate to stand up for all of us and reject the nomination of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court of the United States.”

I am still exercising 5 days a week, but I changed up my routine a bit… instead of walking up stairs, I am riding the exercise bike. 30-45 min, every day except sat/sun (In theory I can use sat/sun as make-up days if I miss one during the week, but I have managed every mon-fri for almost 7 weeks now :)
Happy birthday to helenschappell, and may you have many more, just as happy. Thank you for letting us kidnap you and share your special day.
Also, da_zhuang, you rock. You rock six ways from Sunday.
That is all.
Hey, is anyone interested in going to this?
If you would like to be seated with our party (currently 4 but may grow to 8 or 10) please RSVP by mid-day Friday. Tickets are $95 (possibly less if I can get them direct instead of using TicketBastard™). If you RSVP I will assume you will attend, or be responsible for finding someone else to attend in your place, or otherwise cover the cost of your ticket.
If you’re not sure you can make it, or if you don’t RSVP, you can still get tickets directly from ticketmaster.com or possibly a bit less by calling SJ CPA directly.
We may also plan for dinner (La Pastaia could be good). I will post again with dinner plans as we get closer to the date.

I have sunk to a new low.
